This local 9-hole is a true "putter course". Just outside of Fort Collins in the town of LaPorte, it's about 20 minutes from Edora, depending on traffic. You can leave your drivers at home and just carry a putter or two as most baskets can be reached with a short toss. The longest hole is #9 at about 250ft, the others are significantly shorter. Don't underestimate the course though. It's extremely tight with low ceilings and guarded baskets. Definitely not a bunch of baskets in a ball field where birdies on every hole is a given. A score of 18 on this course would be proud, and surely shave points off your overall game!
The setting is in a mini-woods of only a few acres of school property with a bike path bisecting it. It's kind of hard to orient to the holes at first, but once you find them, they flow together nicely. The tees are dirt, all marked by short 8x8 posts. Their might have once been fancy signs each post, but now they just have numbers written in magic marker. All the baskets have number plaques.
As a side note; due to it's location, I personally think it would benefit anyone (male) to always have a disc in their hand so as to avoid looking like the "wrong kind of person" prowling around a schoolyard!
The nocodiscgolf website has a link to the pdga listing with directions to the school. Unfortunately at this time there is no map or scorecard available.
